Milton-Madison Bridge to reopen

MADISON — A new Ohio River bridge is set to reopen to traffic by tonight after a more than month-long closure forced motorists to travel 25 miles to the nearest alternate bridge in southeast Indiana, the Indiana Department of Transportation said Wednesday.

The Milton-Madison Bridge temporarily closed on March 11 to allow crews to finish a phase of construction along the half-mile-long span that connects Madison, Ind., and Milton, Ky. The bridge is twice as wide as the old bridge it replaced.
